Today I tried the Plickers app in class for the first time, I conducted a short plenary quiz with questions about the book we have been reading. It worked and the students loved it but….
The students found it hard to hold the cards without covering the Code. I have ordered matt laminating sheets to give a bigger edge to grip and to stiffen them.
Some of the students (P level) struggled identifying the answer they wanted. Instead of ABCD as the options I am going to laminate symbols or images relating to the choices. These can be changed quickly and easily once prepared. I will post with an update once I’ve made them.
The small group size (7) meant I could individually capture each card or they could be laid on the desk but this is not as much fun.
I will be adapting and trying again next week.
